Since arriving in Papeete to do some boat projects, we found ourselves “reinventing the wheel” - asking the same questions hundreds of others have asked - in trying to track down parts, services, doctors, dentists, etc.
We have often said we wished there were a Cruiser’s Guide to Tahiti and French Polynesia modeled after the valuable Panama City Cruisers Guide put together by Debi Shaimas on SV Serenity.
So we started compiling this one and what we have so far is now available online and downloadable as a pdf.

Can do Hydros, repair compressors and fill tanks

Sub Technology is Just past the Naval Base but before the Mobile Station on side street towards the harbour.  

Tanks in French Polynesia (legally) must be hydro teasted every five years and VIP tested annually.  You must have paperwork for each test or it will tecnically illegal for a shop to refill your tank.  

Another shop named Argos is at the far eastern end of Motu Uta and were re ommended by a scuba shop for hydro testing. Nautisport will handle the testing but at a premium.
